You need to do this before sharing or using information from the internet

In the world we live in today, an abundance of information is accessible and available at the click of a button. However, not all information available online is authentic and reliable. While accessing, using, or sharing this information, you need to follow some guidelines.


  • Always check the source of information 

You need to ensure the source of information is legitimate, as numerous pages and sources share fake information online. Check the legitimacy of the page by cross-checking information with reliable sources.


  • Responsibly give credit while using information 

Whenever you use information during PC enabled learning, you have to give the writer credit, mentioning you have referred to their work. By giving due credit, you avoid plagiarism.


  • Remember to Paraphrase information in your own words

While using the information in your projects, homework, or assignments, you cannot use the exact information, copied word to word. You must paraphrase it in your own words. 


  • Do not open links that don’t seem genuine 

If a link does not seem genuine or straightforward, do not open it. 


Here is how you can check if the link is genuine while using PC for learning

  • Check the domain name carefully as malicious links have numbers or wrong spellings.
  • Hover over the link and view the preview before opening. 
  • Don’t open pop-up advertisements on a page.
  • Https is safe, http may be risky.


  • Don’t take all your information from a single source 

Whenever you’re working on a project, homework, or assignment, make sure you don’t take all your information from a single source. Refer to multiple sources to make an informed, well-rounded opinion. 

By following these tips, you can ensure you share information responsibly and reliably.
